We often get asked from our customers, how should we be taking our CBD? We could provide you with the old boring answer of just placing a few drops under your tongue. Instead we decided to put together our creative top 10 ways to consume CBD! Read on to find out more.
What is CBD?
CBD is also known as cannabidiol, which is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Unlike other elements found within the plant, CBD doesn’t get you high and is not psychoactive. This is what makes it safe and legal to take in the form of your choice. You can find many different forms of CBD available to help with pain, such as oils and gummies.
It does this, as well as providing a host of other beneficial effects, by promoting homeostasis within the body. This is essentially a healthy balance of all the elements needed to promote healthy living in humans.
CBD foot pain relief comes from its ability to promote the activity of CB2 receptors in the body and reduce pain and inflammation. It also reduced the stress levels in the body, helping with the anxiety that comes with physical pain too.
Our top 10 ways to consume CBD
CBD Oil under your tongue
The most common way to consume CBD is by placing CBD oil directly under your tongue. This is due to the fact that CBD can easily be absorbed underneath the tongue through the thin mucous membranes there.
When taking CBD oil your tongue, you should hold the drops under your tongue for at least 60 seconds before swallowing it.This allows it to bypass the digestion and become rapidly absorbed directly into the bloodstream.
CBD oil drops in your morning coffee
Why not try a few drops of CBD oil in your morning coffee? Taking CBD in your coffee is rumoured to remove the jitters that can sometimes be associated with caffeine consumption. It also makes a great habit to ensure you don’t forget to take your morning dosage of CBD.
Try it in a cocktail
If your feeling fancy, why not try taking your CBD oil in your cocktail? In San Diego you can order The Mr Nice Guy – that’s a vodka and mezcal mixed drink that includes CBD.
CBD Vape Pens
Vape pens can provide a great and easy way for you to inhale CBD. The benefit of inhaling your CBD is that it is passed through your lungs, where it can be quickly redistributed into your bloodstream.
It is important to note that the long-term health and safety effects of vaping are still unknown.
In a balm
Did you know that CBD can also be great in a balm? When used topically, CBD can reach local targets, like sore muscles or joints. It’s also been said that CBD can be great for period pain.
At Organic Relief, our topical CBD balms are a great way to reduce pain and inflammation. Used by many people as part of their daily routine.
The amazing thing about CBD is that it can be baked into anything, and who doesn’t love a treat? Our CBD gummies not only taste amazing, but they include 25mg of CBD per gummy.
Taking CBD orally, as in ingesting CBD products without placing them under the tongue, is one of the more traditional ways to enjoy a cannabinoid regimen. CBD gummies are excellent for general supplementation purposes. They give you the benefits of the CBD in a tasty, fun and convenient way. You can take them with you wherever you go and take them at any time with ease.
CBD capsules are great for people who are looking maintain a consistent consumption of CBD per day. The one problem with CBD capsules is that they need to be digested. When CBD is ingested it passes through the digestive tract which means you might have to wait upwards of 30 minutes. before experiencing any effect.
While oral consumption has a lower bio availability than other methods, it has been shown to have longer lasting effects. It is a comfortable and easy way to take CBD and is good when you only need a small concentration of the product over a longer period of time. Many customers prefer ingesting capsules as it is easy to calculate exactly how they are taking in each capsule.
In a smoothie
Add more health benefits to your smoothie with a few drops of CBD. Another way to take CBD is by adding half a teaspoon of CBD oil to your morning smoothie for a calm start to the day.
In your fruit
A way in which we personally love taking our CBD is simply by adding a few drops to our fruit, especially Kiwis! Simply split your Kiwi in half and add a few drops into it before consumption! It’s great tasty way to get your CBD intake.
One thing that’s not spoken about enough is the benefits of adding CBD into your daily skincare routine. Testimonials from satisfied customers and reviewed research studies have shown CBD is able to relieve inflammation, soothe redness, and reduce breakouts when used in skincare products due to its antibacterial and vitamin-rich nature.
